In his third appearance at a $10K GGPoker Super MILLION$ final table, online poker legend Isaac Baron (‘westmenloAA’) became the just fourth player in the history of the high-roller tournament to win it twice after he outlasted the 204-entry field and walked away with the $412,449 first-place prize. With the victory, Baron joins Michael Addamo, Darren Elias, and Lucas Reeves in the elite club of players who have captured two Super MILLION$ titles. It also propels Baron up over $1.35 million in total Super MILLION$ earnings, good enough for a Top 10 spot on the tournament's leaderboard. Based on his long list of online poker accolades, Baron was one of the favorites to win it all headed into the final table. However, he first had to deal with Brazil’s Bruno ‘brunovolks’ Volkmann, the current #7-ranked player in the world and chip leader headed into the final table. Like Baron, Volkmann has also previously won a Super MILLION$ and was looking to take his chip lead to claim a second title. Also earning a spot in the final nine were top-ranked Brazilian Pablo ‘pabritz’ Brito Silva as well as 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Damien ‘tritu’ Salas. Salas started the day sixth in chips, however, an early confrontation sent him to the rail sooner than he may have expected. After an open from ‘25th Baam’ in early position, Salas flatted in the cutoff with [poker card="jc"][poker card="js"]. ‘Beast2018!’ three-bet holding the [poker card="ad"][poker card="ks"]. After ‘25th Baam’ folded, Salas shoved his 40 big blind stack. After a few seconds ‘Beast2018!’ made the call and he paired his ace right away on the [poker card="ah"][poker card="td"][poker card="2h"] flop. The [poker card="as"] turn gave ‘Beast2018!’ trips, leaving Salas looking for one of the final two jacks in the deck. The river was the [poker card="5d"] and Salas exited in ninth place for $51,656. Over thirty minutes later, ‘7ingls7’ opened in mid-position with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"]. Right behind him, a short-stacked ‘Nator’ put his final six big blinds in the middle with [poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"]. Action folded back to ‘7ingls7’, who snap-called putting 'Nator' at risk. The flop came [poker card="tc"][poker card="6h"][poker card="4s"], keeping ‘Nator’ out front and in position to double. The [poker card="4c"] hit the turn but the [poker card="kd"] spiked on on the river and awarded the pot to ‘7ingls7’. 'Nator’s run ended in eighth place for $66,860. The pace of play slowed down even more, as nearly an hour of seven-handed play took place. Eventually, ‘7ingls7’ put in a raise from the cutoff with [poker card="kc"][poker card="qc"] and when folded to Russia’s Gleb Tremzin in the big blind, he put in his final five big blinds with [poker card="jd"][poker card="8d"]. Again, ‘7ingls7’ quickly called the shorter stack. The table watched as the board ran out [poker card="6h"][poker card="3d"][poker card="2h"][poker card="4h"][poker card="ts"], awarding another knockout to ‘7ingls7’ and sending Tremzin home in seventh for $86,706. Forty minutes later it was a different story for ‘7ingls7’ who, rather than calling short stacks, was the short stack himself. From the button, ‘7ingls7’ shipped his final eight big blinds with [poker card="ks"][poker card="9d"] right into the [poker card="as"][poker card="ad"] of ‘25th Baam’ in the small blind, who made the easy call. The board [poker card="jh"][poker card="js"][poker card="4h"][poker card="5h"][poker card="3h"] board provided little drama and ended ‘7ingls7’s tournament in sixth place for $112,444. With five left, the action heated up. When folded to in the small blind, Baron put in a raise holding [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"]. ‘Beast2018!’ opted to three-bet shove his 25 big blind stack from the big blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="7s"]. Baron, with the chip lead quickly called and the flop fell [poker card="td"][poker card="7c"][poker card="4h"]. ‘Beast2018!’ picked up a pair and some extra outs, but Baron's overpair held through the [poker card="4s"] turn and [poker card="8s"] river. Baron’s lead increased and ‘Beast2018!’ was eliminated in fifth place for $145,823. At four-handed the stacks were polarized with Baron and Volkmann sitting on the two larger stacks and both ‘25th Baam’ and Pablo Brita Silva looking to double. From the button, the aggressive Volkmann open-shoved his [poker card="ks"][poker card="7h"] into both of the smaller stacks. After ’25th Baam’ folded, Silva called with his [poker card="jh"][poker card="jc"]. The flop came [poker card="ac"][poker card="ah"][poker card="6s"], putting Silva in great shape to win the hand. But Volkmann hit one of his three outs when the [poker card="kd"] hit the turn. The [poker card="5s"] river was of no help to Silva who went out in fourth place for $189,109. Two hands later, Baron opened the button with [poker card="ad"][poker card="4s"] and from the big blind ‘25th Baam’ shipped his final 15 big blinds in with [poker card="js"][poker card="ts"]. Baron made the call and the flop came [poker card="qh"][poker card="9c"][poker card="2h"] giving ‘25th Baam’ some additional straight outs. But the turn was the [poker card="7c"] and the river came the [poker card="as"], which gave Baron top pair and ended Japan’s ‘25th Baam’s journey in third place, good for $245,244. Both Baron and Volkmann were deep stacked headed into heads-up play. Although Baron held the chip lead, they were 60 big blinds effective and it looked like fans were in for a lengthy heads-up match. That was not to be the case though as it only took three hands to determine which of these two players would become a two-time champ. Volkmann raised the button with [poker card="8d"][poker card="7c"] and Baron flatted the big blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="9d"]. The flop came [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"][poker card="8c"] and Baron checked his top pair over to Volkmann who put in a small bet with bottom pair. Baron check-raised his pair of aces and after a few seconds, Volkmann made the call. The turn was the [poker card="ks"] and Baron checked it over to Volkmann again. Volkmann put out a bigger bet which Baron just called. When the river came the [poker card="9h"] Baron checked a third time and Volkmann, with a little more than a pot-sized bet left, opted to shove. Having made two pair, Baron called and ended the tournament. Volkmann missed out on becoming the two-time Super MILLION$ winner himself but walked away with a $318,042 payday as the runner-up.

Alex Foxen won the PocketFives May PLB title. Yes, that Alex Foxen. The live poker crusher, high-rolling sensation that is also the current (and continuing) record holder as the longest-standing #1-ranked player on the GPI. Foxen (5,103.05 PLB points) has been on an absolute rocketship flight up through the online poker rankings, currently sitting at a career-high mark of #7 in the world. Much of his ability to break into the elite ranks of the top 10 came thanks to his massive month of May. In between lining up bracelet bets for the World Series of Poker, Fox spent most of May, in Canada, grinding online. He put up 98 cashes, 13 of which resulted in five-figures cashes. Of course, the highlight of Foxen’s May was his title run during PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker where he won Event #54-H ($530 NLHE Eight Max Zoom) for $68,904. He also added a partypoker KO Series title to his online poker resume by taking down Event #29-HR for $64,916 on the same day he finished in third place in Event #27-HR for another $36,885. Foxen racked up 20 PLB-qualifying results for an enormous total of over 5,100 PLB points. To put that total in perspective, if he’d never played a single online tournament and turned in this performance in a single month, he’d be instantly ranked in the top 150 players in the world. But add that number to his running total, and now he’s crashed through to the top 10. But the online grind is just that - a grind. If a player wants to stay atop the rankings they need to continuously play online. With the World Series of Poker upon us and Foxen in Las Vegas grinding bracelet events rather than Sunday Majors, it’s unlikely he’ll be able to repeat this performance in June. But that doesn't mean he couldn't if he wanted to. PocketFives May Monthly PLB Leaderboard RANK PLAYER POINTS 1 Alex 'SploogeLuge' Foxen 5103.05 2 Pablo 'pabritz' Brito Silva 4905.15 3 'C Darwin2' 4793.56 4 Patrick 'pleno1' Leonard 4733.95 5 'DamageAP' 4725.86 6 Kristen 'krissyb24' Bicknell 4580.92 7 'Discoovery' 4507.39 8 'lena900' 4483.96 9 Kahle 'roflshove' Burns 4273.7 10 Andras 'probirs' Nemeth 4259.65 Nearly equally impressive was the month had by Brazil’s Pablo ‘pabritz’ Brito Silva (4905.15) who found himself only 197.90 points behind Foxen. The spring online series schedules from PokerStars and partypoker gave everyone a chance to load up on tournaments and pick up hefty amounts of PLB points and Silva did just that. He soared to a career-high ranking of #22 in the world and #2 for the month of May. Silva accumulated 18 PLB point qualifying scores but none were bigger than his current online career-defining victory in PokerStars SCOOP Event #31-H ($2,100 NLHE $1M GTD) where he took a home an all-time high score of $249,850 and a massive 1,200,83 PLB point boost. The Swedish Sensation, ’C Darwin2’ (4793.56) took third on the Monthly PLB leaderboard in May thanks to some spectacular scores during the spring series. Like the rest of the Swedish crowd that he runs with (‘lena900’, ‘Sheater’, ‘Greenstone25’) ‘C Darwin2’ is all about volume and in the month of May he didn’t disappoint. He recorded nearly twice as many cashes as Foxen playing just about every tournament he could register for. Even though he was slipping down the rankings for the better part of the month, on May 20 he took down the partypoker KO Series Event #27 ($1M GTD Championship Event) for over $215,000 and 1004.89 PLB points. Anyone who may have thought that ‘C Darwin2’s time in the upper echelons of the rankings had passed better look again, he’s currently sitting ranked #4 in the world. Just before he headed to Las Vegas to grind the WSOP, Patrick ‘pleno1’ Leonard (4733.95) was looking to get back to #1 in world. He almost got there too, climbing back as high as number #3 thanks to a solid month of May. Leonard takes the #4 spot on the May PLB leaderboard after putting in work nearly every day during the large online spring series. The partypoker ambassador picked up two KO Series titles including a win in Event #4-HR for $61,765 and 550,40 PLB points and another in Event #11-HR for another $49,738. His victory in the May 19 edition of the PokerStars High Roller Club $1,050 Sunday Warm-up also brought him $57,191 and 551.36 PLB points. Latvia’s ‘DamageAP’ (4725.86) completes the top 5 in May picking up a career-high online score of $175,730 for his victory in the partypoker KO Series $1M GTD Championship Event. He also racked up 1,041.37 PLB points with the win and he currently sits as the #10 ranked player in the world.
Wednesday's action in the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker was all about big names, big prize pools and for the first time since 2017, and a Main Event High champion other than Gianluca 'Tankanza' Speranza. The final three players in Event #74 High ($10,300 NLHE Main Event) chopped up almost $2.4 million before Belarus' 'Alexgirs' took home the title and the $50,000 left to play for once the deal was made. 'Alexgirs' took home $920,595.81, runner-up Pablo 'pabritz' Brito Silva pocketed $764,941.51, and Alex 'dynoalot' Difelice had to settle for a $722,074.96 payday as the third-place finisher. The Medium and Low Main Events also played down to a champion on Wednesday. Brazilian Joao 'HayashiJoão' Hayashi beat Michael 'merla888' Gathy heads-up to take home $920,066.91 for the outright win. Gathy ended up with the runner-up prize of $655,853.39. The Low Main Event was also chopped up three ways with 'auercan' shipping the title to win $371,750.73. A pair of former #1-ranked players on the Global Poker Index added SCOOP wins and a six-figure score to their growing list of accomplishments. Adrian 'Amadi_017' Mateos topped the 937-entry field in Event #79 Medium ($1,050 NLHE Super Tuesday SE) to earn $164,397.70. Runner-up Bernardo 'Machadada RS' Rocha of Brazil also won six figures, earning $118,812.40 for falling one spot short of the title. Third-place finisher 'BBRS999' walked away with $85,867.20. Meanwhile Steve 'Mr. Tim Caum' O'Dwyer banked $241,956.69 and the title for winning Event #79-High ($10,300 NLHE High Roller). Second-place finisher Juan 'Malaka$tyle' Pardo $185,765.68 and Brunno 'botteonpoker' Botteon finished in third for $142,624.33. Murilo 'Muka82' Figueiredo earned a SCOOP title and $19,500 for beating 59 other players in Event #82 High ($1,050 Limit Badugi). Thomas 'WushuTM' Muehlocker finished second for $12,600 and 'lafarfarel' came third for $9,000. Other players who found their way to the SCOOP winner's circle on Wednesday included 'gotthismoney' (Event #79-L), '282828drakon' (Event #82-L), and 'alligator14' (Event #82-M).
